    Especially when they are spending all of their hard earned profits in devising yet another, "Screw the shooter" campaign !

    This! We have been here so many times before and the truth is no manufacturer has, to my knowledge, ever proved the efficacy of one cartridge over another... there is a good reason for that!

    Rules/competition question..

    To my knowledge legitimate 2-shot DTL events are not held anywhere in the US. Unfortunately. There is an ATA doubles event that may or may not be like double rise tho. Single barrels pretty much are the common ATA tool tho there are some shooters that do use an O/U. IMO, and that of many others, feel that the dying ATA could easily be saved by nothing more than implementing the standard DTL format as that would require nothing more than adjusting the machines a tiny tweak. But that will not happen, sad to say, and US shooters will continue to be cheated of a challenging and interesting game. Too bad, really but there it is .....................

    Browning Pro Trap Recoil Pad

    I used an 11mm Isis green pad pad on my Pro sport. Ground it to fit and just drilled a hole through the plastic back, and poked a hole though the foam at the front. Worked a treat.

    Eley Hawk Titanium Strike & Titanium

    Especially IF you are an Irishman with a Trap shooters mentality ! Perhaps I should explain then ! A certain Irish golfer was involved in an altercation with a photographer in the past few days. It would appear that the aforementioned photographer had the audacity to click his camera, just as the golfer was taking his 'shot'. This caused the shot or ball to go wide of the target. Smacks a bit of Trappies who seem to be able to hear a cow breaking wind from 2 fields away......................alleged ! We sporting shooters just get on with things

    AGL for me too. Started well and ended well just went a bit silly in the middle. Driven was the worst for me I missed 6 - the stupid thing was I should have taken the first bird as a crosser and at least got 4 but no I just got more frustrated and got 2. Two other stands missed 4 on each, one of them was purely down to realising it was better to shoot the first bird out of my shoulder but too late. The stand where they had the large birds at the championship got me today as well. Canโ€™t be too unhappy finished on an 82 with the rest of the stands straights or one away.

    On to AGL. Nice varied course, good balance of stands, only one or two tough ones. Should have hit a tidy score but 88; usual story of some tatty misses, then missed first two pairs on the driven stand! Cut back, hit last two pairs. Idiotic. Just canโ€™t get round the whole course unscathed at the moment..

    Owls for me today and the first shoot in 3 weeks with minimal pain - tooth out yesterday which took 50 minutes of giving me 13 injections to numb enough to take out! Apparently the massive infection although on the mend was still there and that and my own adrenaline fought the anaesthetic. but I digress. It rained on us for the last four or five stands. Enjoyed the shoot, managing 5 on stand 3 once I discarded my hat. Pair of rabbits was a shambles for most of my squad including me. ๐Ÿ˜‚. Finished on 77.

    There is an interesting thread on Pigeonwatch forum where a member has done extensive tests on many cartridge brands testing their velocity . Interesting reading if you look up some of the 'Premium' and compare with the 'economy' . It could help many of you to spend wisely.

    Owls Lodge today. Breezy and a bit chilly, but no rain fell on me. Shot it at 10 (well, M4 disaster journey meant we were late). I thought it was an interesting course, with only one really firm stand, but general level was respectable. Even so the scores that were in from some good names were lower than I had expected, with only 92 leading at 1pm. LOTS of good shooters still to go, a big entry, so I think a 96/97 will come in. I hit 89 and enjoyed it, but was messy and kept dropping one or two when I had no reason too. Iโ€™ll blame it on not shooting much lately. I got 4/8 on the tough stand 3. Good to see Hamid and many other friendly faces.

    Browning Pro Trap Recoil Pad

    Hi. I wonder if anyone could help me please. I have a Browning 725 pro trap with adjustable stock. I am looking for the short recoil pad that would have come with one of these guns when new. I believe the shortest/thinness to be 12mm. The pad has one hole in it for the screw to release the mechanics that holds the cheek piece in place, and two very small slits that take some finding for the screws that hold in onto the gun. Does anyone have one that they don't need or would be willing to sell. I have contacted a few places and got no joy. Thanks Chanco

    I would not expect to see many people shooting these at every target, the price would potentially be prohibitive. I would expect to see them used in the same way that Black Gold (Dark Storm), Sovereign (Parcours), and so on shells are used. People keep a box in the bag for any target that needs a bit of extra 'crunching power' like something very edgy or rabbits at distance.

    Saw plenty of them you just had to be there,you won't ever see any shotcam as they are not allowed in CPSA competition

    Rules/competition question..

    No there's not. I think that gun was developed for the American market where DTL is also shot as a single barrel discipline.

    Rules/competition question..

    Are there any single barrel competitions (in the uk) where you have to use a single barrel gun? ( not just one cartridge in a double)? I've been offered a Browning BT99 but i cant see when Id ever use it.

    English Open at AGL

    3/8ths choke, hull sovereign parcours 7's, 2 of the loopers on 3b, 3 of the loopers on 8b, 2 of each on 11. All misses were operator error, choke and cartridges were more than capable.
